Day 110 (19 April 2012) Laser Painting

I’ve been wanting to play with my laser pointer for a while, and finally bought new batteries for it this past weekend, and tonight was the night!  I thought it would be cool to use it to reveal a shape in the dark.  Can you guess what the object is?

Day 63 (3 March 2012) Chair Lift

I spent today on the slopes at Wattchuset Ski Resort snowboarding! After dealing with rain for a couple hours, the weather started cooperating an it dried out, and cooled off. This caused some really thick fog near the summit. Not having my DSLR with me, I shot this with my iPhone. It was challenging bombing down the mountain with such limited visibility, but it just added to the challenge!

Day 22 (22 Jan 2012) Sunday River, Day 3

Good by wonderful mountain!  I’ll miss you!

Today was great!  The light snow that fell yesterday coupled with a cold night and bright sun made for great conditions!  Some of the best I’ve seen on the East Coast!  The mountain was mostly empty, too!  It was great to just be able to point my board down and push the limits of control (I maxed out today at 43 mph!)!

Tomorrow starts ‘normal’ life again, but that’s not a bad thing!  I’ll get to see my friends again, and start a new semester!

These photos were taken after I decided I was done for the day/weekend.  It was 2 hrs before my lift ticket expired, but after 3 days of hard riding (and not being as young as I once was), coupled with a pending 5 hr drive home, I was finished!

I was going to try the 2011 washed away leaving 2012 written in the sand, but it was night by the time I made it to the beach and the waves were very small with short intervals (not enough time to write the 2011, and shoot it in this light).  All lighting is natural to Ocean Beach in New London, CT, where this was shot, and it is actually quite dark here, dark enough to need a flash light to set up the camera.

Let me know what you think of this shot, and/or ask any questions you may have!

Enjoy!
